10 Rare Dvds Worth Collecting
The prices of DVDs have come down drastically in the last two years. You can buy hundreds of titles for less than five dollars each. The diminishing prices have not hurt the value of rare DVDs. There are quite few titles that are valued at over $50. Here is a list of rare DVDs that worth collecting if you can find them.
Begotten – This incredibly bizarre move was filmed in black in white and has no dialogue. In spite of the graphic gore (or because of it), this DVD commands a high price.
Cook, Thief, Wife, and His Lover – This tale of revenge set in a restaurant is extremely hard to find. Don’t be fooled by the region 2 versions that are floating around, the region 1 version is the most sought after.
Dirty Mary Crazy Larry – A 70’s action movie starring Peter Fonda and Susan George. The movie is famous for the sudden downer ending.
Dr Syn: The Scarecrow Of Romney – This rare DVD from Disney comes in a very nice tin case. The movie was originally aired on TV in 1964, but this collector’s item was released in 2008 and quickly went out of print.
Dr Zhivago – It is hard to believe that such a famous movie could be on the rare DVD list, but it’s true. This academy award winner is out of print and is not easy to find.
Mystery Science Theater 3000 Vol. 9 – All of the volumes of Mystery Science Theater are worth good money but volume 9 seems to outsell them all. It routinely sells for over $100.
Quatermass And The Pit (Anchor Bay) – Sometimes known as Six Million Years To Earth, this 60’s science fiction movie is part of the Quatermass series. Look for the Anchor Bay version that says Hammer Collection on the cover.
Scarlett – The sequel to Gone With The Wind had a cool reception when it was released, but now that it is out of print this DVD is one of the most sought after in the market.
The White Buffalo – This western starring Charles Bronson has lost some market value over the last year but is still worth picking up.
Timerider – This time travel movie starring Fred Ward is valuable on both VHS and DVD. The DVD version sells higher at auctions, but the extremely rare VHS version is the only un-edited version.
